Learn hypnosis from a master hypnotist

Conscious and Subconscious Mind

A few quick thoughts on the ‘conscious’ and ‘subconscious’ mind.

Our brain is a neural network. The patterns it runs are very different than binary symbolic logic patterns. Thats why we can do face recognition so easily, but we aren’t that good at math.

At the same time we use use language, symbols, and numbers. We do use symbolic logic. This obviously runs on the NN hardware, but it follows the rules of deductive binary symbolic logic just the same. (you could say this is our internal dialog, but I’m not 100% certain).

And so we have 2 ‘modes’ of processing.
1. Pure pattern matching (neural network), evolutionary style thinking, not predictable, open ended, intuitive, non logical, parallel processing, and so on.
2. Deductive symbolic logic. Step by step, exact, predictive, and so on.

Now Erickson decided to call them ‘conscious’ and ‘subconscious’. To me, consciousness is awareness and that can be awareness of either ‘mode’, but those names have stuck.

And so I think yes, there is a hard split between 2 ‘minds’, but it’s really just 2 styles of processing.

One of the ways of getting hypnotic responsiveness is to slow down or eliminate the symbolic processing logic type of operation (the internal dialog perhaps). In my opinion this is what Elman meant when he spoke of bypassing the CF. It’s what creates the trancified look of fascination that we often see in awesome subjects. Without internal dialog, thats how you look 🙂

Blindingly Fast Text Hypnosis

This is a text trance from a while back…

William and I had never met or spoken, but he did know that I was a hypnotist. He also had never before been hypnotized.

I would say it’s most probably the quickest tested hypnosis ever done via text (with no previous installed PHS).

It took 1 minute 20 seconds from the open until we got an IMR, and another 4 minutes 40 seconds until I got confirmation for a negative visual hallucination.

Study it and then go do it yourself!

Skype Conference Call

I recently put a few dots together and collected a whole lot of information ‘under one roof’. I’m going to be doing a free conference call on skype on Wed Jan 5th at 3:30PM EST and I’m going to be giving it all over…

You probably already know a lot of this information… and at the same time you might have not put it all together as a cohesive whole. That will be my goal.

Here are some of the issues I’m addressing.

What is hypnosis?

What is an induction?

How do instant inductions work?

We always hear the experts say “tell them whats going to happen when you say sleep… or else they don’t know what to do…” Isn’t that cheating/faking hypnosis?

Can you hypnotize someone who has never heard of hypnosis?

I always hear about ‘being confident’ and being ‘The Hypnotist’. What does that have to do with my subject going under?

I hear alot about compliance and getting the subject to listen to you. What does that have to do with hypnosis? Isn’t that just compliance?

Why is the pretalk so important? Why can’t we just zap them under?

I have heard ‘inductions aren’t magic spells’, if they aren’t that what are they?

I have heard that inductions are rituals… What does that mean?

You can add me on skype at joe.10000 and IM me if you want to join.

This is all free as I haven’t yet gotten savvy enough at the internet marketing thing to figure out how to sign you up for a never-ending email newsletter…

Looking forward to seeing ya’ll.

Making your suggestions work

So you’re getting some simple trance effects like arm levitation and catalepsy. You’re even getting partial amnesia. But it seems like some suggestions just wont stick! What do you do now?

Well, it seems you’ve discovered a very very important thing. And that is that even after they are hypnotized, unless they are in somnambulism, you still have to give suggestions properly. Thats because they don’t fully understand what you want. However when they are in somnambulism they become very literal minded and so they take what you say at face value without needing to understand what you want.

Here are 3 key things you can do before they are in somnambulism so that they understand what you mean on all levels and your suggestions work even better.

1. Visualize the effect working and then describe what you see to them. This is crucial. If you want an arm stuck using glue, visualize and imagine completely that your arm is stuck with actual glue, and describe how that looks and feels to them. Describe how it feels to try to lift it. Describe it in the here and now. This is the most important thing in hypnosis.

2. Fit the suggestion into their world. If you have someone who has experienced real glue, the suggestion will work much better. If you get a stuck arm, then suggesting a stuck name will work much better. See where you can use what preexists to slot your suggestion in as a seamless extension of that. Use everything. Their past experiences in life, their experiences with what has worked. Don’t suggest new things, simply extend what already exists. Put some thought into that and how you can make that work. Leverage everything.

3. Say these magical words after you give a suggestion “if you understand that nod your head”. It really does work wonders.

Do these three simple things and you will find that your success with suggestions increases exponentially.

Happy trancing!

Expectancy

Here are a few questions a fellow named Swoop posted on a a forum, and here are my responses and ideas.

1. Do you believe that expectancy is important when hypnotising?

Yes.

2. If so, what active measures do you take to increase your subjects expectancy?

I tell them whats going to happen.
I tell them about the thousands I’ve tranced.
I zap someone in front of them.
I tell them that someone with their unique qualities (it’s rather easy to find out what someone thinks is special about them rather quickly, just ask “so what are you especially good at?”) is especially good for trance.
I explain trance in a way that makes sense to them and fits with their experience. I use examples from their own life (driving on the highway, daydreaming, not seeing the milk in the fridge…).
I use magnetic hands to show them that it “works”.
I tell them after they pass magnetic hands that it’s the hardest part to do and if they can do that then trance is 100 times simpler.
I believe.
I believe some more.
I add on some belief on top of that.

3. Is expectancy the main determinant of the success or failure of hypnosis? Or is the subjects innate ‘hypnotizability’ level more important? Are they both important?

One of the main main things. One might say that high hypnotizables can generate high levels of expectancy very quickly. I would rather have a 20% somnambulist with medium expectancy over an analytical with high expectancy. Once you get to super high expectancy, you already have trance.

4. If you believe that expectancy is highly important, how stable do you believe expectancy is? Does it depend more on the subjects preconceived notions and experiences with hypnosis? Or does it more depend on the skill of the hypnotist in the current hypnosis session? If a subject was to fail the current suggestion, how does this affect future expectancy?

Here is a key rule. The subjects subjective experience is king. Into this category goes past experience.
If we want to create a powerful expectancy, we must create a powerful subjective experience.
How do we do that? First of all we must believe 1000%. This creates a strong experience in our subject of knowing it will work. It’s not a rational thing, its a subjective thing. Ever heard me talk about being THE HYPNOTIST?
This is also why having the subject see you trance someone is so powerful. It’s a subjective experience for the subject, having them see with their very own eyes that it works.
The third way we do this is by doing exercises with them and then framing them properly. This is why magnetic hands done right is so very powerful.

Happy trancing!

Somnambulism

Just a few things we all know, and maybe organized a bit differently….

How is it that some of us think that all and any effects we get are voluntary and that our subject can remove his response to the suggestion at will , yet others seem to feel that once a suggestion has been accepted then we can create a situation where the subject has no choice but to follow?

How is it that many times our subjects say “yeah I was playing along”, when we fully know that not the the case?

The key here is somnambulism. If you don’t have it, then your subjects might get control over their responses. They might feel that their responses are voluntary. If you do have it, unless you suggest something that is a really bad idea, your subject will go along and have no conscious control over their actions. You can create a bulletproof PHS and have it work regardless of the subjects willingness.

If you aren’t getting somnambulism you’re missing the boat.

What is somnambulism?
I understand it to be full bypass of the critical factor. So a light or medium state of hypnosis would be where the subject has reduced his critical thinking and analysis of your suggestions. Somnambulism is where there is zero critical factor and analytical interference.

How do we get it?
Some people (20%) will go there by themselves on the first go around. Those are the times we get some new dude who tries hypnosis and come back reporting that they got immediate invisibility and freeze effects. The lucky guy got one of those magic 20%.
For the other 80% we have to TRAIN them how to get to that state. It’s not a state that many of us are used to hanging out in, although it is extremely useful for learning new things. When you learn a new skill from an expert it is very helpful to put that analysis on hold completely until you have the skill down well.
How do we train them? Ah! This is the key question. The Elman induction is a great tool for this. The disappearing numbers are a state of blank non critical analysis. When we get them to the point where the #’s are gone they are by definition in somnambulism.

Remember to always go for somnambulism and you’ll find that it’s rather simple and well well worth the effort.

Utilization and resistance

In the past we have spoken extensively on being The Hypnotist. That entails making sure to keep an attitude of success. Whatever the subject throws at you is greeted with an attitude that it was expected.

Today we will explore a response that is even more powerful. Not only will we sidestep efforts at derailing our induction, we will actually use whatever is being thrown at us to facilitate trance.

For example, you’re inducing trance using a relaxation induction and the subject says “I can’t relax my body”. The hypnotist that has the wrong attitude will say “try harder to relax”. The hypnotist who has the proper THE HYPNOTIST attitude will say “wonderful, many people find that in the beginning they relax at a slower pace”.

The hypnotist who utilizes resistance will go one step further….. he will say “good…… and I wonder just how soon…. that interesting feeling of being unable to relax….. will completely capture your focus….. as you find that feeling impossible to ignore….. as you hear the sound of my voice”.

What has the hypnotist done here? He has taken resistance and used it in a powerful way to facilitate the trance state. The state of being absorbed in a feeling and unable to ignore a feeling is a profound state of trance. The hypnotist has also tied this to the sound of his voice, thereby creating a greater response potential from the subject.

Of course the subject can resist this suggestion, what that will do is make him not focus on that feeling of being unable to relax, and he will relax right into trance.

This is a fine example of a double bind being used along with a few other techniques, to neatly and simply use resistance in our favor.

Remember, any response, even resistance, is a good response. So long as we can create a response we can produce trance. It is only when there is no communication at all that we can’t induce trance.

If you have a particular resistance that you bump into and would like to find a solution for, simply leave me a comment in the comment section and I’ll think you up an answer!

Happy trancing!

Hypnotherapy

When I first began looking into hypnosis I was very attracted to NLP and Ericksonian hypnosis.

Its all so elegant and and theoretically beautiful. NLP even says that it needs not be true because it’s useful!

When I opened my practice I was in for quite the surprise. My clients need to change on a deep powerful level, and NLP didn’t seem to do the trick. It works really well for phobias and other minor issues, but for the fellow sitting in my chair with anxiety disorder it simply didn’t do the job.

I turned to hypnoanalysis to find what I was looking for. I got Cal Banyans 5 Path DVD set and found it to be eye opening. I now use Cal’s methods in my sessions as my basic guide.

Of course my experience with NLP and Ericksonian hypnosis was useful, I still feel that you don’t need to prove something thats useful. It’s simply that hypnoanalysis works for me in my practice.

This leads me to my new method of brief therapy. It mirrors the process of age regression, yet needs no formal induction of trance and still gets the same results. I will be writing about my method extensively over the next few months.

The first step in my method is to illustrate to the client how our logic is affected by what we feel. We accomplish this by explaining to the client that many mothers see their children as very cute even though it might not be the objective truth. The mothers aren’t lying… they really truly see that their children are cuter then other kids!

This is a prime example of how our emotions color our logical thinking. The emotion that the mother feels for her child colors her thinking to the point that she actually sees her child as cuter.

Once our client understands this we are well on our way to establishing a neutral point of view for that client. This is a significant therapeutic achievement in its own right, and it helps us greatly in our work as we proceed.

New therapy method

I have recently designed a new method of brief therapy. It does not need a formal trance induction and is quite powerful and life changing.

I have started writing a book on my method and I will post some of my thoughts from the book on here from time to time.

A Sample Text Hypnosis Session

Here is an example of a text trance with a non believer. I cleaned up the spelling and took a few insignificant parts out. This fellow wanted to experience being a dragon… so I gave that to him!

Notice the language, the structure, and most of all how everything is always “perfect”. The key here is projecting the confidence that it will work and that I’m the ’tist.

Initially the negative hallucination didn’t work, so I went right back to making it work until it did!

Comments are in bold.

Enjoy!

[12:59:16 AM] Steve says: I don’t believe in hypnosis. I get in trance all the time but nothing ever happens afterwards. I can feel stuff during the trance, but when I wake up… nothing happens. D:
[12:59:21 AM] Steve says: Got any advice?
[1:17:16 AM] Steve says: So do you know the answer to my predicament?

[1:17:48 AM] Joe says: trance is easy
[1:18:02 AM] Joe says: and if you have a good skilled ’tist
[1:18:07 AM] Joe says: you will go under
[1:18:16 AM] Joe says: if you follow instructions
I establish right away that this WILL happen
[1:18:23 AM] Steve says: Well I mostly do files though. D:

Same thing here
[1:18:33 AM] Joe says: lol
[1:18:44 AM] Steve says: And I am not very suggestive. XD
[1:18:46 AM] Joe says: files are no comparison to a live ’tist
[1:19:15 AM] Joe says: suggestive is an idea that people place too much importance in

Same here
[1:19:20 AM] Joe says: look
[1:19:26 AM] Joe says: have you ever daydreamed?
[1:19:32 AM] Steve says: Not really. XD
[1:19:44 AM] Joe says: have you ever driven and not concentrated the whole way?
[1:19:59 AM] Steve says: No. >>’

The standard answer to those question is “yes”. He is resisting me here so watch carefully what I do here.

[1:20:04 AM] Joe says: perfect
[1:20:13 AM] Joe says: then you are very good at keeping focus
[1:20:25 AM] Joe says: which means you will go into trance very quickly and deeply now
[1:20:36 AM] Joe says: its that simple
[1:21:01 AM] Steve says: Yeah, but I mean nothing seems to work. I can focus and go into trance and all, but nothing happens afterward.
[1:21:24 AM] Joe says: of course not
[1:21:47 AM] Joe says: have you been going to a live master hypnotist?
[1:22:04 AM] Steve says: No. Just files. I really want to see if something works with you though. >>’
[1:22:47 AM] Steve says: That’s why I messaged you. :S
[1:22:50 AM] Joe says: of course it hasn’t been working
[1:22:55 AM] Joe says: gawsh
[1:23:07 AM] Joe says: we make the funniest generalizations sometimes

Once again setting the expectation
[1:23:56 AM] Joe says: well
[1:24:03 AM] Joe says: are you ready now?
[1:24:13 AM] Joe says: and free of distractions?

Focus is very important in trace
[1:24:19 AM] Steve says: Yeah. Do you want a webcam of me. XD
[1:24:25 AM] Joe says: hmmm
[1:24:32 AM] Joe says: I’ll start with text
[1:25:43 AM] Joe says: I first trance you
[1:25:48 AM] Joe says: then I wake you
[1:25:51 AM] Joe says: then we discuss
[1:25:55 AM] Joe says: what you want
[1:26:00 AM] Joe says: that is my standard procedure
[1:26:08 AM] Steve says: Ok. How do I sit? Both feet on floor or most comfortable?
[1:26:21 AM] Joe says: whichever works for you

I’m casual and confident here, I project that whatever happens it will work
[1:26:24 AM] Joe says: OK
[1:26:29 AM] Joe says: no distractions?
[1:26:32 AM] Steve says: Yep.
[1:26:58 AM] Joe says: good
[1:27:05 AM] Joe says: now put two fingers
[1:27:09 AM] Joe says: one on each key
[1:27:12 AM] Joe says: one for yes
[1:27:15 AM] Joe says: and one for no
[1:27:18 AM] Joe says: so you can signal me
[1:27:25 AM] Joe says: without looking at the keyboard
[1:27:28 AM] Joe says: ok?
[1:27:31 AM] Steve says: ok
[1:27:56 AM] Joe says: so signal yes please
[1:28:00 AM] Steve says: y
[1:28:02 AM] Joe says: good
[1:28:04 AM] Joe says: and no now
[1:28:20 AM] Steve says: n
[1:28:33 AM] Joe says: good

Setting the signals and the compliance momentum
[1:30:37 AM] Joe says: ok
[1:30:42 AM] Joe says: so in a moment
[1:31:04 AM] Joe says: I will type a color
[1:31:14 AM] Joe says: and when I type that color
[1:31:34 AM] Joe says: you will feel a pleasant feeling
[1:31:36 AM] Joe says: inside
[1:31:55 AM] Joe says: and when you begin to notice where that feeling begins

Notice all the presuppositions here (begin, notice, where it begins) that he will feel the feeling
[1:32:01 AM] Joe says: simply signal yes
[1:32:09 AM] Joe says: is that ok with you?
[1:32:11 AM] Steve says: y
[1:32:21 AM] Joe says: GREEN

I don’t get a response right away, so I build an altered state here with a change of focus
[1:32:41 AM] Joe says: that’s right
[1:32:46 AM] Joe says: as you breath
[1:32:55 AM] Joe says: and read these exact words
[1:32:59 AM] Joe says: and focus
[1:33:33 AM] Joe says: and those thoughts in your mind
[1:33:40 AM] Joe says: and GREEN
[1:33:55 AM] Joe says: and notice where that feeling would start

Almost saying he can imagine it by saying “where it WOULD start”
[1:33:58 AM] Joe says: inside
[1:34:10 AM] Joe says: maybe a tingling feeling now
[1:34:17 AM] Joe says: or a warm feeling
[1:34:26 AM] Joe says: or even a relaxing feeling
[1:34:48 AM] Joe says: or maybe that strange feeling of nothing happening inside

Covering all the options. At this point it has taken a long long time and I’m almost ready to change inductions. Often I get a response within 10 seconds.
[1:34:50 AM] Steve says: y

AH! Once I get this we are off to the races…
[1:34:54 AM] Joe says: perfect
[1:35:00 AM] Joe says: and in a moment
[1:35:12 AM] Joe says: I will type another color
[1:35:23 AM] Joe says: and that feeling can spread
[1:35:36 AM] Joe says: and when you notice where its spreading
[1:35:42 AM] Joe says: simply signal yes
[1:35:46 AM] Joe says: is that ok?
[1:35:50 AM] Steve says: y
[1:35:53 AM] Joe says: ready now?
[1:35:55 AM] Steve says: y
[1:35:57 AM] Joe says: BLUE

I’m building his unconscious responses, this is the essence of hypnosis
[1:36:03 AM] Joe says: that’s right
[1:36:11 AM] Joe says: you are doing perfect
[1:36:20 AM] Joe says: and notice the speed
[1:36:25 AM] Joe says: of that now
[1:36:27 AM] Joe says: fast
[1:36:30 AM] Joe says: or slow
[1:36:40 AM] Joe says: or even maybe not moving yet
[1:36:55 AM] Joe says: or maybe moving without you noticing that now
[1:36:59 AM] Joe says: consciously
[1:37:02 AM] Steve says: y
[1:37:04 AM] Joe says: consciously
[1:37:07 AM] Joe says: perfect
[1:37:13 AM] Joe says: and in a moment
[1:37:22 AM] Joe says: I will type another color
[1:37:36 AM] Joe says: and it will spread to the rest of the body
[1:37:43 AM] Joe says: and when you notice that
[1:37:48 AM] Joe says: simply signal
[1:37:57 AM] Joe says: is that ok with you now?
[1:37:59 AM] Steve says: y
[1:38:01 AM] Joe says: ready now?
[1:38:03 AM] Steve says: y
[1:38:09 AM] Joe says: ORANGE
[1:38:13 AM] Joe says: that’s right
[1:38:23 AM] Joe says: and that can feel good
[1:38:27 AM] Joe says: as you breath
[1:38:31 AM] Joe says: inside now
[1:38:35 AM] Joe says: and focus
[1:38:39 AM] Joe says: on that
[1:38:43 AM] Joe says: or this
[1:38:49 AM] Joe says: and moving noiw
[1:38:52 AM] Joe says: or fast
[1:38:56 AM] Joe says: or slowly
[1:39:05 AM] Joe says: or unconsciously
[1:39:13 AM] Joe says: and that’s perfect
[1:39:13 AM] Steve says: y
[1:39:17 AM] Joe says: perfect
[1:39:34 AM] Joe says: and now I would like to talk to your unconscious mind
[1:39:42 AM] Joe says: is that ok with you?

It goes much smoother with permission, it breaks resistance. Notice how I used it earlier with the colors
[1:39:46 AM] Steve says: y
[1:39:53 AM] Joe says: perfect
[1:40:27 AM] Joe says: unconscious mind: please give me the signal for yes by moving his finger when you are ready to communicate for his own good now
[1:40:32 AM] Joe says: and don’t do that consciously
[1:40:38 AM] Joe says: let it be unconsciously
[1:40:47 AM] Joe says: and it can take as little as 3 seconds now
[1:40:53 AM] Joe says: or as long as 7 seconds

Giving a choice with a time frame that is good and short
[1:40:59 AM] Steve says: y
[1:41:08 AM] Joe says: perfect
[1:41:40 AM] Joe says: and unconscious mind, can you please send his conscious mind away into a pleasant memory while we talk so he wont disturb us?

Making life even easier
[1:41:50 AM] Steve says: y
[1:42:16 AM] Joe says: perfect
[1:42:25 AM] Joe says: and please do that now and signal when its done
[1:42:33 AM] Joe says: it can be as short as 3 seconds
[1:42:37 AM] Joe says: or as long as 7
[1:42:41 AM] Joe says: to do that now

I ask it to do things and then I tell it to go ahead and do it. I find that it’s more powerful that way
[1:42:53 AM] Steve says: y
[1:42:59 AM] Joe says: thank you
[1:43:11 AM] Joe says: and unconscious mind
[1:43:43 AM] Joe says: can you make it that anything in the
(_) is not visible by his conscious and its only visible to you so I can communicate with you even better?
[1:43:54 AM] Steve says: y
[1:43:58 AM] Joe says: thank you
[1:44:07 AM] Joe says: and please do that now and signal when its done
[1:44:15 AM] Joe says: as short as 3 or as long as 7
[1:44:33 AM] Steve says: y
[1:44:39 AM] Joe says: perfect
[1:45:19 AM] Joe says: and unconscious, in a moment I will type “awake”, please awaken him and make it that anything in the (_) is for you only, not his conscious. is that ok with you unconscious?
[1:45:29 AM] Steve says: y
[1:45:52 AM] Joe says: perfect
[1:45:55 AM] Joe says: awake
[1:45:58 AM] Joe says: hi!
[1:46:03 AM] Steve says: Hey
[1:46:06 AM] Joe says: how are you feeling now?
[1:46:12 AM] Steve says: Pretty refreshed.
[1:46:16 AM] Joe says: 1 7 (8) 9 4
[1:46:20 AM] Joe says: what numbers do you see?
[1:46:38 AM] Joe says: quickly
[1:46:40 AM] Steve says: 1 7 8 9 4?
[1:46:43 AM] Joe says: type them now please
[1:46:49 AM] Joe says: perfect
[1:46:58 AM] Joe says: and this time please type them quickly
[1:47:02 AM] Joe says: read them once
[1:47:05 AM] Joe says: ok?
[1:47:08 AM] Steve says: Ok.
[1:47:14 AM] Joe says: 3 (5) 8 3 0
[1:47:16 AM] Joe says: go
[1:47:20 AM] Joe says: type them now
[1:47:20 AM] Steve says: 3 5 8 3 0
[1:47:25 AM] Joe says: perfect

It didn’t work! I’m shocked here, but I go right back to setting it up again
[1:47:40 AM] Joe says: and please put your fingers on the signal keys now
[1:47:55 AM] Joe says: and give me the yes signal when they are on there
[1:47:59 AM] Steve says: y
[1:48:11 AM] Joe says: and unconscious please signal yes when you are ready to talk again
[1:48:15 AM] Joe says: 3 or 7 seconds
[1:48:28 AM] Steve says: y
[1:48:28 AM] Joe says: thank you
[1:48:39 AM] Joe says: and please signal when you have sent the conscious mind away
[1:48:43 AM] Joe says: into a memory
[1:48:45 AM] Joe says: 3 or 7
[1:49:02 AM] Joe says: thank you now
[1:49:13 AM] Joe says: and signal that when its done now
[1:49:17 AM] Joe says: 3 or 7 seconds
[1:49:24 AM] Joe says: it can take now
[1:49:31 AM] Steve says: y
[1:49:33 AM] Joe says: perfect
[1:50:01 AM] Joe says: and unconscious, is it ok with you to make it that he cant see the things in the (_) consciously?
[1:50:11 AM] Joe says: the things in the parentheses
[1:50:15 AM] Steve says: y
[1:50:18 AM] Joe says: perfect
[1:50:28 AM] Joe says: and can you make that effect now and signal when done?
[1:50:34 AM] Joe says: 3 or 7 seconds
[1:50:53 AM] Steve says: y
[1:50:54 AM] Joe says: thanks
[1:51:19 AM] Joe says: and please make that effect so strong that he has no idea consciously what happened
[1:51:27 AM] Joe says: and this is for his own good
[1:51:32 AM] Joe says: is that ok with you?
[1:51:40 AM] Steve says: y
[1:52:10 AM] Joe says: and please signal when you have made the effect so strong that there is no way he can see or notice the things in the (_) consciously
[1:52:16 AM] Joe says: 3 or 7 seconds
[1:52:33 AM] Steve says: y
[1:52:42 AM] Joe says: so that when I type those numbers or those commands after he is awake he does not see them consciously
[1:52:52 AM] Joe says: and it feel natural to not see them
[1:52:56 AM] Joe says: and nothing is off
[1:53:01 AM] Joe says: and it feels fine
[1:53:07 AM] Joe says: so I can talk to you
[1:53:12 AM] Joe says: and you can do what you do
[1:53:18 AM] Joe says: for his own good
[1:53:33 AM] Joe says: and you can read those things
[1:53:39 AM] Joe says: in (_) and carry them out
[1:53:43 AM] Joe says: for his own good

“For his own good” helps a lot
[1:53:48 AM] Joe says: is that ok with you?
[1:53:53 AM] Steve says: y
[1:54:48 AM] Joe says: and please awaken him when you have made those things happen very very strongly, and have hm say “hello!” without realizing consciously what happened and without wanting to know what just happened
[1:54:55 AM] Steve says: Hello!
[1:54:58 AM] Joe says: hi
[1:55:02 AM] Joe says: so whats up!
[1:55:09 AM] Steve says: Not much.
[1:55:14 AM] Joe says: good
[1:55:20 AM] Joe says: and how was that memory
[1:55:24 AM] Joe says: pleasant?
[1:55:27 AM] Steve says: Yep.
[1:55:30 AM] Joe says: good
[1:55:49 AM] Joe says: 9 (3) 4 3 2 2 2 (3) 9
[1:55:59 AM] Joe says: what numbers do you see
[1:56:01 AM] Joe says: quickly
[1:56:04 AM] Joe says: type them
[1:56:05 AM] Steve says: 9 4 3 2 2 2 9
[1:56:21 AM] Joe says: perfect
[2:00:47 AM] Joe says: (make his leg stuck to the floor now please for his own good) ok do this now, breath in
[2:00:50 AM] Joe says: and out
[2:00:53 AM] Joe says: and in
[2:00:57 AM] Joe says: and out
[2:01:07 AM] Joe says: and try to lift both legs
[2:01:15 AM] Joe says: what are you finding?
[2:01:27 AM] Steve says: I can’t move my legs. D:
[2:01:29 AM] Joe says: good
[2:01:33 AM] Joe says: are you in hypnosis?
[2:02:03 AM] Joe says: (please make him lose his name now for 1 minute for his own good) and what is your name now?
[2:02:09 AM] Joe says: try to remember it
[2:02:13 AM] Joe says: type
[2:02:15 AM] Joe says: now
[2:02:23 AM] Steve says: I dunno. D:
[2:02:34 AM] Joe says: are you in trance?
[2:03:23 AM] Joe says: (when I type the word “close” have him close his eyes for 30 seconds and make him experience the feeling of being a dragon and make it feel like 30 minutes) type now
[2:03:29 AM] Joe says: are you in trance?
[2:03:42 AM] Joe says: 🙂
[2:03:53 AM] Steve says: I guess. I am relaxed.
[2:04:10 AM] Joe says: well would you say that name amnesia means you are in trance?
[2:04:20 AM] Joe says: is that something “working”?
[2:04:22 AM] Joe says: lol
[2:04:27 AM] Steve says: I don’t know. I could only remember the first letter.
[2:04:35 AM] Joe says: and is that normal?
[2:04:40 AM] Steve says: No. D:
[2:04:50 AM] Joe says: so what does that mean?
[2:04:56 AM] Steve says: I am?
[2:04:58 AM] Joe says: its an easy question 😀
[2:05:00 AM] Joe says: easy
[2:05:05 AM] Joe says: lol
[2:05:06 AM] Joe says: yes
[2:05:09 AM] Joe says: and very deep

[2:05:28 AM] Steve says: 1:03 AM
[2:05:34 AM] Joe says: CLOSE
[2:05:44 AM] Joe says: when you see this please type “back”
[2:06:23 AM] Steve says: Back
[2:06:29 AM] Joe says: how long was that?
[2:06:44 AM] Steve says: I dunno. Felt like 30 minutes. :O
[2:06:52 AM] Joe says: what time is it?
[2:06:57 AM] Steve says: 1:04 AM.
[2:07:11 AM] Joe says: look at the time you wrote before you did that
[2:07:13 AM] Joe says: 😀
[2:07:21 AM] Joe says: are you in trance?
[2:07:22 AM] Steve says: :S
[2:07:24 AM] Steve says: Yes.

[2:07:30 AM] Joe says: yes indeed
[2:07:46 AM] Joe says: so how was it

[2:08:03 AM] Steve says: Pretty exhilirating. 😀
[2:11:33 AM] Joe says: so are you in hypnosis?
[2:11:38 AM] Steve says: Yes.
[2:11:43 AM] Joe says: from a scale of one to ten
[2:11:47 AM] Joe says: how deep are you?
[2:12:06 AM] Steve says: Uh… I dunno feels like 4 but I am probably at 10.
[2:12:40 AM] Joe says: (when I type “see” please make him see a small dragon walking on his keyboard) good! you are learning how this works
[2:12:42 AM] Joe says: lol
[2:12:48 AM] Joe says: having fun?
[2:12:52 AM] Steve says: Yeah.

[2:14:13 AM] Joe says: (this time make it walk slowly and have it stay around for him to examine closely) good!
[2:14:17 AM] Joe says: what was it?

[2:14:36 AM] Joe says: SEE

[2:15:17 AM] Joe says: and what is it?
[2:15:30 AM] Steve says: Looked like a miniature dragon. XD
[2:15:37 AM] Joe says: its still there?
[2:15:42 AM] Steve says: Yeah/
[2:15:49 AM] Joe says: talk to it
[2:15:56 AM] Joe says: it will answer in dragon language
[2:16:03 AM] Joe says: and you will understand it now
[2:16:09 AM] Joe says: what did it say?
[2:16:26 AM] Steve says: It said it was scared. x3
[2:16:35 AM] Joe says: well talk to it
[2:16:39 AM] Joe says: calm it down
[2:16:42 AM] Joe says: pet it
[2:16:47 AM] Joe says: let it go on your arm
[2:17:11 AM] Joe says: tell me whats going on
[2:17:29 AM] Steve says: I let it run up my arm and it’s on my neck. :]
[2:18:13 AM] Steve says: But it’s weird it’s all flickery. :[
[2:18:46 AM] Joe says: (have him enjoy it for 10 minutes now typing whats going on) ok……
[2:19:29 AM] Steve says: And I can’t really feel it either, not really see it and it feels like it is talking telepathically like in the movie Eragon. x3
[2:24:00 AM] Steve says: And now it’s gone. Is that bad? :[
[2:24:32 AM] Joe says: perfect
